About seven decades ago, a singer named Hank Willams, Sr. introduced a song which has been re-recorded and sung by many over the years. In 1948, “I Saw The Light” was released by Williams. The song lyrics describe a moment of spiritual insight and transformation. Here are a few of the words:
“I’ve wandered so aimless, life filled with sin I wouldn’t let my dear Savior in Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night Praise the Lord, I saw the light. I saw the light, I saw the light No more darkness, no more night Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight Praise the Lord, I saw the light. Just like a blind man I wandered alone Worries and fear I claimed for my own Then like a blind man who God gave back his sight Praise the Lord, I saw the light.”
Throughout the pages of the Bible, God is described as light. Light is, obviously, the opposite of darkness. Light is not only what God gives to people; it is who He is!
Because God is light, when we spend time with Him, He sheds light on us. He helps us to see things that we otherwise couldn’t see. He reveals things to us about life, ourselves, and His plans. When you’re with Him, you’re able to “see the light!”
